Good pictures. I also follow a group on Facebook called Moon Photography and some impressive photos get posted in there too. 👍

Hopeless in the UK for astro photography. It is peak Milky Way  season and moon now favourable for a couple of weeks (in that it won't have risen before Milky Way shows) yet despite the apparent blue skies the Astro index (scale 1- 10, really need 7+) is zero. Yes zero. Thin high cloud, general haze and pollution being the cause.

Everything taken together, here in Lincolnshire are more good things than man could have had the conscience to ask.

On the subject of Jupiter I took this picture a couple of weeks ago on a nice clear evening.

I can't zoom but think I can spot 3 Galilean moons, DrM.

I'm pleased - the floaters and cataracts do confuse a bit, not to mention the double vision! 🤣
Tonight: A good rising Moon with Jupiter in attendance to the East. Saturn to the South.

November's full moon rising through a bit of low cloud in the NE. I was hoping to get it passing behind Winter Hill, but the cloud got in the way.
